Isn't this sequence supposed to continue - or have you forgotton to add pages to this sequence because I can't find Frank Grundeen in this pages.

Mmm, interesting that Toombs, Swift, Patterson and Simmons do elephants.

Oh, I should point out that I've finished my Alice mosaics today and posted them, and I was wondering if you want to check the final sequence.

You are fast, Steven: I corrected the posting a minute after I published it. Refresh your browser to see the correct draft pages.

It is great you finished Alice! I will look shortly - these days are rather hectic. Dec. 24th and all...

"[] Patterson"? That's a funny way to spell "Ray". :)

I wouldn't call Grundeen's animation "effects" - he animates the elephants and hippos. Incidentally, while I did expect to see him on this sequence, I assumed he had animated the fish in scene 28.

Notice that the sleeping hippo is animated by "elephant" animators (even in the final shot where no elephants are present) but when she wakes up she is animated by Hicks Lokey.

In scene 39, it seems Toombs animated the elephant floating by in the bubble, while Swift animated the big pile-up. (Curiosly enough, he didn't animate the elephant pyramid in Dumbo.)

The Patterson here, of course, is Ray Patterson. The furrows are there, and he has a track record to prove it.

Howy Swift does some funny aniamtion of Elephants piling up. His eye animation is interesting, sort of like Bernie Wolf's Donald Duck art.
